Why is the water in Lake Ontario so high?: Your Stories

Local News

Some of our viewers have been concerned about how high the water is in Lake Ontario.

Many are blaming the Plan 2014— America and Canada’s joint agreement to set a minimum and maximum water level in the lake to help save wildlife, which some were against.

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers says it has nothing to do with Plan 2014, but rather lots of rain, not necessarily in New York, but on the Western end of the lake in Michigan.
